Carrie is the heart of Heartwood Visuals. With a professional and academic background in conservation, sustainability and science communication, she has consistently ingrained creativity and art into her work. Her illustrations are inspired by interconnections between humanity and the environment and she harnesses the power of visual communication to deepen and strengthen these connections. Carrie’s current path as a visual practitioner has grown from her experiences as a sustainability planner, social science researcher, naturalist and environmental educator. Currently based in Fort Collins, Colorado, she feels fortunate to share her passion to enhance communication and engagement, explain complex science and overall create positive change through visuals.
